Weight loss after AntiDepressants?

I have been on antidepressants for 2 years and have gain about 15 pounds since being on the pills. It has been two weeks that I have been drug free. My question is, has anyone that has stop taking anti depressants lost the weigth they gained, and if so was is as easy as stopping the meds?

Answer on Weight loss after AntiDepressants?

I was on Klonapin for about five years or so. I was switched to Xanax. After being taken off of it I lost fifty pounds without even having to diet. I know that anti-depressents do make you gain weight even without an increased appetite. I am Bipolar so I can't stop taking the meds but if I could I would probably drop another fifty pounds. Good Luck
